EnCana Corporation (ECA) dividend for July 2010

Things are working out quite well these days for the Dividend Girl! Ok, so for the credit card balance transfer it’s going to work out! Strangely, the only way to get a 6 months extension on my TD Visa card for the low interest rate of 4.9% is to perform a credit card balance transfer. So I don’t have any choices, I have to transfer the current balance I have on my TD Visa over RBC Visa and than, once the transfer will be completed, call TD and do the magical credit card balance transfer and than I will be all set for the next 6 months. The only problem is that I have to make sure I make my TD credit card payment on time each month. If not, it will cancel the rate of 4.9%. One miss payment and bye-bye low interest rate. So this is what’s going to happen in the next couple of days. My RBC Visa is not working anymore because of a magnetic problem I was told so I am currently waiting for the new credit card to be delivered. So I don’t know if I can, in the meantime, still proceed with a credit card balance transfer. I be able to do so I guess only if the card and expiration date remain the same – but I my RBC credit card was going to expired soon…. Anyhow, I might give RBC a call asking for the info but I am not sure if an agent could answer this question, in the sense that they are not the one who deals with card numbers directly but it might worth a try. I will proceed with the credit card balance transfer as soon as possible. That way, I won’t have to face to any credit-card-low-interest-rate until January 2011. The timing will be perfect because at that time, I will probably and finally have my 100 000$ assets goal reach. It’s not as complicated as it’s seem.

My non registered portfolio is at 47 377$. I had received the dividend for EnCana Corporation (ECA), 20.58$. I had been thinking, and despite my willingness to save money as emergency fund, I am really tempted to make my investment in Corby Distilleries (CDL.A) like it was planned before. With my upcoming paycheck of this Wednesday, I will have more than enough to invest in 100 stocks of Corby Distilleries (CDL.A). This won’t bring too much as dividend, only 56$ actually… OR…….. I could invest in 100 new units of JE.UN……. And bring an extra 144$ in dividend money in the house. This is kind of funny knowing how many times I said I was building an emergency fund. But guess what, if it had to happen I get laid off – again – unemployment benefit will become my emergency fund. Good or bad to thing that way? I don’t know. But I am sooooooo close to the 90 000$ now and I am soooooo happy about it! And I had been thinking over and over again to hit the 1 000 in Just Energy Income Fund (JE.UN) units (I am currently at 743 right now!). It’s all confused in my head right now. My 100 000$ assets goal is over-exciting me lol. So should I invest or not? This is exactly where things are getting complicated. But in a certain way, I need to keep money aside, so I might keep the money as payment on my credit line. I didn’t make any payment on my TD credit line yet because I remember about this paycheck coming on this Wednesday at midnight. I will be able to make a 2 000$ in payment on my credit line. Of course, the 2000$ might not stay there forever. But instead of having money sleeping in my bank account, I prefer to have the money apply on my credit line. It will help me to reduce the interest gains on a monthly basis. That’s basically it for now.
